|Digital Tipping Point: Maria Winslow, open source biz guru 05 - Christian Einfeldt|
This is one of many short video segments which will be added to the Digital Tipping Point (DTP) archive. In this particular segment, Maria continues with her brief history of Linux and GNU. She tells the newbie audience that Linux is the "core" of the software, and that GNU is a collection of substantial tools that completes the operating system. (I'm paraphrasing). Next, Maria gives a nice, snappy, short definition of Clayton Christensen's "disruptive technology" concept...
